Dominica Citizenship by Investment

Citizenship-by-Investment Program of the Commonwealth of Dominica was established in 1993, making it one of the longest running programs of its kind in the world. Over the past 2 decades the Government of Dominica has revamped the program in order to ensure that it is competitive on a Global scale.

Through this Program, the Government of Dominica is able to attract investors of good character to invest in the Country. In exchange for full citizenship, investors may either purchase Government approved real estate or make a donation to the Government Fund.

Main applicants must be 18 years of age or older to apply for citizenship of Dominica through the Citizenship-by-Investment Program. Applicants can include dependent family members such as a spouse, children up to the age of 30 and parents over the age of 55. Applicants must be of good character and have no criminal record and provide a clean police report along with other supporting documents.

Once an applicant’s application for citizenship is approved in principal (approximately 60-90 days from the date of submission of documents to the Government), and the requisite investment is made, the applicant, along with their included family members will become lifetime citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica and be granted passports within the strict guidelines of the law and relevant regulations.

There is no physical residency requirement associated with Dominica Citizenship by Investment. Applicants have the choice to either live in Dominica or to live outside of the country.
